Welcome to the Pastor's Page . .

Pastor Gregory Alms was born in Houston, Texas and lived in various places growing up: San Francisco, New Orleans, Cincinnati, Philadelphia and Akron, Ohio. He attended Concordia University in Chicago and Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne. He has earned a Masters of Divinity and a Masters of Sacred Theology degrees. Pastor Alms has served at Redeemer since 1996 and is thankful for the community of saints in this place. He is married to his wonderful wife, Suzanne, who is a Lutheran school teacher and they have been blessed with four amazing daughters. He enjoys reading and writing but not arithmetic. 

In October the Alms family was blessed with our first grandchild Miriam Louise,  God's gift to Jonathan and Katie Rudy.   Over our Thanksgiving family holiday I was blessed again as I shared the Rite of Holy Baptism with Miriam and her family.  Here are some pictures of this very special time at Zion Lutheran Church in Naperville, Illinois.
